#OscarsSoWhite got some wind knocked out of its sails in 2017. This year, six people of color were nominated in every performer category. Among them was Mahershala Ali, who became the first Muslim actor to win the prestigious award for his work in Moonlight.  

Not only is Mahershala an accomplished and ground-breaking Oscar winner, he’s also a poet. And Remy. Swoon.
